Very artistic work Nikola.

Pic1 is strikingly "different" and really made me stop and look hard at it. I see that shutter was 1/4000 s with aperture f/1.8 :shock:.

IMO it takes imagination and guts to take and post a pic like this. If the main tulip had been perfectly in focus (or indeed all 4 or 5 tulips) then yes, I'm sure it would have looked good - but good just like a lot of other tulip pics. This pic really stands out from the crowd - well done.

I like pic2 too.

I think maybe pic3 would have more impact framed as portrait - but then art is a subjective subject. :D

I agree with Bruce... :smt017 :lol: They are quite lovely there Nikola and pic #1 is a standout. Like Bruce mentioned though, pic #3 might would be better as a portrait shot but also as he, Bruce, said it is subjective and the second image, I really like how you captured the "blood red" color of the petal, really vibrant. :D

Just fooling around Bruce, I do find your comments to be quite interesting :wink:

Thanks Bruce! :D
Good eye, seenig another tulip behind the central one. :wink:
Yep, f/1.8 is max. apreture for Canon EF 85 mm f/1.8 USM lens. Nice feature, you can take some pics in deep shadow without flash.

I was thinking about that "a posteriori" ... but with new camera I got some kind of "non cropping" taboo mood. :shock: :-k

Thanks Ken! :D
I just set eyes on your response.
I'm satisfied how this camera reproduces the red colour. Reds could be problematic colours for some cameras, not sure why? :-k

Who, me? Sorry, I don't have clue about the reds!

Besides, I was distracted by pic #1, thinking that indeed this is a shot you just could not have taken with your old point-and-shoot.

Why? Because you couldn't have gotten a lens wide enough to blur the background so thoroughly! [*]

Nice pics, Nikola! :D

[*] Well, actually, you could, but it wouldn't be easy, and that's a discussion for another day. See http://www.mediachance.com/dvdlab/dof/index.htm .[/size] :wink:
